Chocolate Mini Ghost Cupcakes Recipe #TruMooTreats


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TruMoo for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. When my son was younger he loved chocolate milk but so did my husband. I would always come home to someone crying that the other person drank the rest of the chocolate milk. After my middle child started drinking milk as well it became a free for all.  I think I pay some salaries at the milk companies honestly. TruMoo is a more recently addition to the fighting. My son liked the taste at a friend's house so I researched it and found out it … [Read more...]

Sweaty Betty – Fun Clothes for Workouts

All Weather Protector Jacket

Back when I was first starting to get my weight on track, one of the problems I had with working out, or one of my excuses really, was that I didn't really have the clothes for it. I'd go to a store and be overwhelmed with all of these options and then people staring, it was just not fun and uncomfortable. I recently found out about Sweaty Betty which is a website that is nothing but workout clothes. Not just one type either, they have workout apparel, yoga wear, running attire and even swim wear. So there are plenty of options for any type of … [Read more...]
